This lesson plan will explore the hydrologic cycle and the journey water makes to our glass. Upon completing this lesson, students should know and understand the components of the hydrosphere of Earth, especially the surface and subsurface features, and should be able to prepare a diagram to illustrate the path of their drinking water from the place of precipitation to the tap.

This site provides access to streamflow data for USGS (United States Geological Survey) streamflow monitoring sites around the United States. The data can be searched using an interactive map or by state. Most stations report Station Number, Station Name, long-term median flow, present flow stage, present water temperature, and the date and time of the last entry. Most stations also have stream flow ... Full description.

The USGS National Water-Use Information Program is a cooperative program with State and local governments designed to collect, store, analyze, and disseminate water-use information, both nationally and locally, to a wide variety of government agencies and private organizations. Two reports detail the estimated water use in the United States in 1990 and 1995. The corresponding data for counties and ... Full description.

These interactive exercises are designed to help students learn about river processes like discharge, flooding, and flood frequency. Each activity requires them to make careful observations and measurements, do simple calculations, and answer questions about their work. An interactive feedback and answer checking function checks their work. A Certificate of Completion is available at the end of each ... Full description.

In this module, students carry out a number of activities that demonstrate the concepts of evaporation, condensation, precipitation, and soil moisture and runoff. The students then construct a terrarium as a way to observe the water cycle as a whole. Immediately following this, students use the Internet to acquire Real Time Data from the Olympic Peninsula in Washington which they can then use to describe ... Full description.

Comment on this resource
This database and accompanying report demonstrate the potential of combining observed river discharge information with a climate-driven Water Balance Model in order to develop composite runoff fields that are consistent with observed discharges. This combination preserves the accuracy of discharge measurements as well as the spatial and temporal distribution of simulated runoff, providing a 'best ... Full description.
